Peacock’s Garden Cotton Towel
Peacock’s have risen in popularity recently in prints and fabrics. Their tails are so grand in their beauty that they could almost be described as a waterfall of flowers. We decided to try and illustrate this concept and we hope you like the results as much as we do. Add a touch of surreal whimsy and warm color to your kitchen with this tea towel. Generously sized at 29”x29”.
About flour sack fabric:
During 19th and early 20th centuries, basic cooking ingredients like flour and salt were traded in large sacks made of 100% cotton. The finest cotton was chosen for its durability and heavily knitted using a diagonal method, making it easier for the fabric to dry. It didn’t take long for people to realize that this fabulous fabric could be used for dish towels, pillow cases, and hand towels.
